Bike died this morning, need ideas.

I was riding my wife's FZ-6 on the way to work this morning, when it decided to quit on me. I was running about 75 when the engine, dash and headlights died. I coasted off to the side of the road for some troubleshooting. Here's the deal.

No blown fuses, good battery.

Key on - flashers, blinkers, horn, and brake lights work. Dash will not cycle on, no speedo, no fuel or temp indicators. Fuel pump will not cycle. Engine will not turn over. Dash looks like you've got the key off. ( small digital clock is visible ).

I pulled the pos. lead of the battery to reset with no results. I checked all visible and accessible wire connections with no results either.

Any thoughts? I managed to get the bike loaded up into a truck, and I'm sitting at work with a dead ride.

Thanks in advance.

Britt

Were you able to check the far end of the ground wire from the battery where it contacts the frame or engine? It may have vibrated loose. If it happened quickly with no signs of a problem then it sounds like maybe a wire that came completely off, like something not getting a good ground, or possibly a dead ECU. Look for hidden in-line fuses too.

Best of luck.

Fixed. 10a ignition fuse in a panel that I didn't know existed.
